If patient is admit and discharged same day but was in observation. What code can you use since the 99234-99236 is only billable if patient is inpatient?
Thanks

These codes specifically state "Observation or Inpatient Care". They are correct to use if patient admitted to, and discharged from, Observation on the dame DOS.
